Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about 37,000 and a historic past extending back to Roman days, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lies very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is believed that there had been settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, early relics and coinage uncovered near by show proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, went through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who developed the market place in around the 10th Century, and antiquities discovered show that they were settling the vicinity more than likely from the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time isn't remarked upon till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a much wider area than only the town by itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be included prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
